Southeast Asia Children on the Move Conference

Save the Children (SC), Terre de Hommes (TdH), International Detention Coalition (IDC) and Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN) are jointly organising a regional conference on children on the move in Southeast Asia.

The event will take place in Bangkok, Thailand on 24 and 25 May 2017.

Why hold a Regional Conference on Children on the Move?

The aim is to gather inputs from a range of stakeholders across the Southeast Asia region to inform the content of the Global Compacts on Migrants and Refugees especially issues that relate to children, as well as the content of the forthcoming Joint General Comment on the human rights of children in the context of international migration.

The conference will focus on three thematic areas that impact children on the move:

  1. Access to services
  2. Child immigration detention, provision of appropriate reception and care
  3. Integration and non-discrimination

Who should attend and why?

The conference is for representatives of national and regional civil society organisations, national governments and UN bodies who have experience of, interest in or the mandate to support the rights of children on the move and other children affected by migration. You are invited to register your interest to participate as an individual, representing your organisation or government who can bring experience and technical expertise to this event.
